King is offside (behind the Ace-Queen in East's hand), the declarer has another

marked with the King (based on bidding, leads, etc), declarer may now discard a
side suit loser on the trick unless East covers. If so, South ruffs the
trick and returns to partner's hand in another suit, allowing further discard
opportunity on dummy's remaining CJ.
